BENEFITING: AMERICAN RUNNING ASSOCIATION

EVENT: RUN the Boston Marathon® with AMAA

EVENT DATE: Apr 21, 2014

Emily Rinaldo

THE STORY:

I'm raising money to to help with the fight against youth obesity in the U.S. by teaming up with the American Medical Athletic Association (AMAA) by running the 2014 Boston Marathon, since I was unable to complete the 2013 Marathon due to the tragic events that occured at the finish line.

Over 30 percent of children ages six to 11 are overweight, 15 percent are obese, and three out of five children ages nine to 13 don't participate in sports or other coached physical activities outside of school. These overweight and unfit children are more likely to remain unhealthy in adulthood and have an increased risk for developing life-threatening medical conditions such as Type II diabetes and heart disease.

Donations made on my behalf will help me reach my goal of helping support AMAA and the American Running Association (its sister organization) to support their joint "Youth Fitness Programs Campaign." by running this year's Boston Marathon. The campaign's central national event is the "National Run A Mile Days" which takes place the first week in May each year. Training materials and onsite incentives are provided to all participants.

Please consider donating. ANY amount will help me get closer to my goal of helping support these two non-profit organizations as they work hard to deter youth obesity through fun and motivating programs.
Thank you for your generosity.
